WORD ON THE STREET
I was recently contacted and informed a drawing I did 15 years ago at the start of my career is up for charity auction (Anti-vivsection Society of BC) for their 90th anniversary! This is 1 of about 30 from my first series depicting hand trees. I ended up giving most of them away to friends and family but this particular one was bought promptly after conception. It also represents my 1st sale, a friend from high school bought it for $30 when we were both 18 and then she spent $100 framing it under glass, that was 14 years ago in 2003. It is probably the most well preserved one as the others were not framed. It is also from the same series of my first ever art show in Hamilton, Ontario at the Staircase Theatre in 2003. You can now see more as I added them to my website (www.lisangart.com) under "PAINTINGS." Scroll all the way down and there they are and you will have also scrolled through the 200 paintings I've painted since then. I was thrilled at the time but now I can't believe how far I've come, more details to follow.

GOSSIP
I was recently contacted by a gallery from Santa Monica, California, I have never been. Nothing exclusive or anything like that but it is a new relationship I am pursuing. There's been talk about a group show but it won't happen for a year so I have plenty of time to prepare. It's very new and I am excited and happy and nervous!

NEW PAINTING

Family Portrait 48 x 36 x 1.5 inches acrylic on canvas 2017

My brother commissioned me to do a family portrait so I did us in Chinese zodiac animals. I'll have to take a better close up later. It's a surprise for my parents so please, keep it a secret!

GLAMOUR SHOT


Been out of the limelight a little bit -I got married!
Here's me pigging out on my wedding day back from September.

5 Pt. Essay On Keeping It Real

SCALEY VASE acrylic on canvas 16 x 20 x 1.5 inches 2016 $600

JK Rowling's Harry Potter was rejected by 12 publishers with reasons being it was slow to start, the characters at the beginning were hard to identify with and that there's no money in children's books. 
James Cameron (who was living in his car at the time) fired his agent because he hated the idea for The Terminator. He later sold the script for just $1 with the stipulation that he direct (despite having only directed 1 other movie at the time) and Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to it as "some shit movie" at the time of making. 
George Lucas was rejected by 3 production companies (1 which later bought Lucasfilm) while looking for someone to finance Star Wars. Reasons included it being, "a little strange" and that it was not like "what was popular last year."
Johannes Vermeer left his family in debt before the 200 years it took for his work to be recognized. 
Nobody gave a damn about Vincent Van Gogh when he was painting. 
So what I'm trying to say is, the important thing is to keep on offering the world something beautiful nobody else can (and eventually the tide will turn)

October Art Show


I booked my first art show of the year, more pending if I can get time off work. This one's in October. I can't say I ever stop painting but I do take painting breaks (I am human after all). On Sunday, October 29, I will be taking a giant painting break from noon to 7pm. That's 7 hours I will be away from my painting. I'm coming out to share my artwork and meet my fans, autographs welcome. Please wish me good weather and I'll try not to be a grumpy cat.

Painting Spotlight: TIGER MOM IN HER THRONE


TIGER MOM IN HER THRONE
acrylic on canvas
36 x 48 x 1.5 inches
2017
$1500

     This is my most recent magnum opus inspired by my own tiger mommy. I added a metronome for time keep for piano (or violin) study and it rests on the cube of sky that is my freedom. Adorned with jewels, she wears lipstick and sits atop her mighty throne, ready to dish out Chinese riddles and math problems at the first sign of protest. It's just me and my brother in the family but I had a cousin who was around a lot also. I'd most likely be the teeny cub in the bottom right there with only my wee tail peeking out. I was a mute kid (unless provoked) and if you went looking you'd probably find me hiding somewhere, folding an origami animal or drawing a daffodil. 





HELLO I AM HERE

Sorry it's been over a year since I last updated. I'm not very good at checking in but to be fair I've been so busy painting and with the odd sale online. I'll have to update in chunks and write in here more often. I'll just give you some of the highlights for now.

I updated my website, all my new paintings can be found here along with a complete catalog of my 200 something paintings: www.lisangart.com

I sold a large painting online called FURRY FERRARI from this website!: https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Furry-Ferrari/672002/2109052/view

Every four months someone buys a print of my FLAMINGOS IN THE BATHROOM painting that sold at the Burlington Art Auction: https://society6.com/product/flamingos-in-the-bathroom_print#s6-6033372p4a1v45

I started a youtube channel, right now I'm working on a family portrait of my family in Chinese Zodiac Animals: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYHOudaUh-fOLXrqNvGM0aw

Here is my painting POLAR CHAIR featured in Spirituality & Health Magazine Nov/Dec Issue pg. 30. 75K copies:


I also got married in September, here is a painting I did around that time called FUR FIELD:
